It was a shaky start but finished strongI was ind of hesitant to start Us I really enjoyed the first in the series Him which was surprising at the time 45 stars Us is a seuel to one of my favorite romances HimThe story starts a couple of months after Him ends Wes and Jamie live together now Wes dream has come true he is having a terrific rookie season at NHL and he is also having the man s heart he loved in his whole life But his happiness is not spotless Wes doesn t believe he can have both the most important things in his life at the same time In fear of coming out would damage his career Wes and Jamie decide to Os Guardiões da História I - Começa a Tempestade (History Keepers keep their relationship hidden till the end of the seasoneeping the media focused on Wes s game not on his sex life It s my biggest fear That the success I ve been having in my first season with Toronto will be overshadowed or worse forgotten because being a gay professional athlete is the far juicier story Wes thinks it is the worst that could happen to him until something even worse happens and Wes realizes what is truly importantJamie loves Wes but suffers from hiding Not being out is a very stressful situation for both of them but it makes especially Jamie lonely and isolated Plus Wes is travelling a lot and being apart worsens things even Top of it all Wes s teammate Blake moves into the same apartment building robbing them of the privacy and safe haven they had Blake besides being irritating is the catalyst leading to necessary changes in Wes and Jamie s lifeBlake s intrusion drives Jamie even deeper into his obvious depression It is heartbreaking to see him sinking deeper and deeper into it Depression affects not only mind but body and view spoilerimmune system too so a physical disease as a result hide spoiler 4 stars Us is the highly anticipated seuel to the book Him by two of my favorite authors After two childhood friends reconnected and fell in love Wes and Jamie are living together in Canada pursuing their dreams Wes is playing for an NHL team and Jamie is coaching a youth hockey team Wes s schedule is rough on them both he s constantly traveling at away games and Jamie is often left behind due to his own job commitments On top of the crazy schedule Wes and Jamie aren t really out yet There s never been an openly gay member of the NHL before and Wes doesn t The Sun on My Head know how it would affect his career Adding even fuel to the fire a teammate of Wes moved into the building and is CONSTANTLY around meaning even less boyfriend together time for Jamie and Wes To make matters worse yes there s even poor Jamie is having a hard time at his job but has trouble discussing this with Wes So basically this seuel proves that not everyone can ride off into the sunset and have everything be rainbows forever and ever Within the last two years or so both Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy have become some of my favorites authors separate and together in their writing Whenever I read one of their books it flows and is effortless I never find myself putting the book down to do other things Us was the same way I read it straight through While I preferred the angst of friends to lovers in the first book I still enjoyed this follow up and the trials and tribulations Jamie and Wes went throughAll of the issues mentioned above it seemed impossible that all would be resolved but actually the authors pulled it off Even if it wasn t because the characters were motivated and it was actually external forces To me this felt like the characters were forced into decisions instead of making them on their own because of genuine want I also wanted to smack both of the guys for being oblivious of each other and foreeping so many secretsI did love the introduction of a possible love story between Jamie s sister and Wes s teammate Is that going to happen Pretty please Don t care how I want it now ARC Riverbend Road (Haven Point, kindly provided by authors in exchange for an honest review 4102017 A little Wes Jamie reread via audiobook before I jump into Good Boy later this month The narrators are perfection 425 Stars Love is friendship set on fire Alr.
